Then you have GOAT profs like Tamanaha, Greenfield, RHB, Drobak, and others I haven't taken. LaPierre is good too but idk if he's GOAT.
I didn't have him, but a lot of folks I talked to about DBT liked him and his teaching, just the exam problem.
Would mention that I have loved all of my profs this year (Osgood, Norwood, De Geest, Kim, Law) except Konig, who I like personally... but that class... yikes.
YOLOing the shit out of that exam tomorrow.
Personal rank of 1L professors: Tamanaha, De Geest, DBT, Drobak, Magarian, RHB
Anyway, any upperclassmen have advice for write on?
Start as soon as humanly possible if you're not a virtuoso work under pressure sort of person.
Disagree with bolded. I should have started sooner, I waited till like Tuesday to even look at the materials, but write-on fucking sucks. Imo it was way worse than finals, stress and time constraint wise. You just completed 1L -- take at least a day off.
Advice: if you're trying for Law Review and you're not grading on, the BB part matters a lot. If you just want a secondary journal it matters less to varying degrees. Regardless, what does matter is your case comment. That being said, figure out whatever the issue is you're supposed to discuss in your comment. There's going to be a bunch of crap to confuse you in the 400-500 pages but once you figure out what you're supposed to be addressing, issue wise, you can ignore/disregard most of it. Just make sure you know which case to critique and what the central issue is, and you will be fine.
